Practice Questions for Advanced Module B: W. B Yeats

Most students consider Module B to be the most difficult of all three modules. It requires a close knowledge of text and language forms and features used to create meaning within texts. Refine your skills and test your knowledge with the following questions:

  • How is your personal response to the poetry of Yeats shaped by a perception of voice in the poems? In your answer, refer to THREE of the poems set for study. (2009 Catholic Trial)
  • A valuable text has something to say and says it well. How valid is this claim, considering the different contexts in which a text can be received? In your response compare your evaluation of Yeats’ poetry with one other perspective on his work. Base your discussion on close analysis of at least TWO poems. (2009 ETA Trial)
  • Write a series of three or four reflections that demonstrate how your response to William Butler Yeats’ poetry changed and developed during the process of your critical study. Base your reflections on a detailed examination of TWO or THREE of Yeats’ poems. (2009 Independent Trial)
  • “A text has value if it creates opportunities for change, while maintaining its core values.” Explore this notion in relation to your text set for study.
  • A key aspect of the poetry’s ongoing appeal is Yeats’ use of meaningful structure. In your view, to what extent does the structure contribute to the appeal of Yeats’ poetry? Support your evaluation with detailed reference to at least TWO of the poems prescribed for study.
  • How has considering other interpretations of Yeats’ poetry helped you develop your own appreciation of the textual integrity of the poetry? In your response you should consider the ideas, poetic techniques and structure of at least TWO of Yeats’ poems prescribed for study.

Studying for Exams and More Sample HSC English Papers

The best, and perhaps only way to study for HSC English exams is to practice answering as many questions on your relevant module as possible. More exam papers are attached for you to attempt, or at least look at so you can get an idea of the kinds of questions you may be asked.

A good way to approach your study is to look through the past papers and attempt questions without actually writing up a full essay. Most people find it overwhelming and difficult to write essays when they are not under the pressure of the exam. An alternative is to set out a structure for your essay without actually writing it. For example, you could follow this structure guide:

Write the full introduction, as per the guide to writing band six introductions. This will require you to really think about the question and the points you will be making. If you can write the introduction and your main points, you should be able to write the rest of the essay.

For each body paragraph, just write the thesis statement and the main pieces of evidence you would use to support this statement. For example, you may have

A sense of belonging can emerge from the connections made with people, places and the larger world.

Evidence:

(give an example from your prescribed text and identify how it links to the thesis)

(give an example from your related text and identify how it links to the thesis)

This is one way of ensuring you would be able to answer the question, and really tests your knowledge and encourages you to apply it.

Write one-two sentences on what you would include in your conclusion.

Writing out an essay structure like the one above is less time consuming than writing out a whole essay, but still ensures that you think about the ways you can apply and manipulate your knowledge to suit specific questions.
